GIVE SOMETHING BACK WITH OUR C&A ‘WE TAKE IT BACK’ RECYCLING PROGRAMME.
To take the next step towards circularity we need only one thing from you: your unwanted clothes and shoes. And don’t we all have some of those in the back of our closet? Now you can give them a new life and do something good. Simply bring them to a C&A store nearby and together with our partner I:CO we will take care of them.
Get to know our partner in recycling I:CO.
Most of the garments are in good condition and can be reused and reworn.
Very few textiles that are not suitable for Reuse or Recycling are used as combustibles for energy production.
If the garments cannot be reworn they will come back to life in any number of forms – from cleaning cloths to furniture or in the automotive industry and on playgrounds.

GET ON BOARD FOR OUR C&A JOURNEY TOWARDS CIRCULAR FASHION.
We have a vision: a world in which clothes never become waste. A world in which clothes are worn until they can no longer be used and are ultimately made into new products.
Our ‘we take it back’ recycling programme is a step forward on this journey towards circular fashion. And for this step we need your help.
The current rate of collected clothes and shoes is too low. Too many products, which could be re-worn or recycled, end up in the trash. Together, we can change that. We can make sure clothes are worn longer or made into new products preventing them from becoming waste.
With our ‘we take it back’ recycling programme we move further towards a more sustainable and circular future. Help us achieve this and check out our Cradle to Cradle Certified™ products here.
